MAINTAINANCE THIS WEEKEND! (Re: New project machines on order.)

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Sat, 10 Sep 2005 00:53:49 -0700 (PDT)

    The new project machines came in and I've got them built.  So far 
    everything seems to work.  SMP, networking, 3ware card.  I even connected
    the HDD LED connector to the 3ware controller :-).

    So far I'm quite impressed.  The AMD X2 3800 (the low-end X2) is like
    having two LEAFs in one box.  Buildworld -j 8 times are coming in
    under 23 minutes.

    I will be performing surgery on my LAN servers this weekend so there
    might be some down time for both crater and leaf.  To avoid complications
    I will probably disconnect from the internet for some of the maintainance.


	* /unused3 will be going away (Jeremy's jails will be moved to the
	  new package building machine.  All other data on /unused3 will
	  be destroyed).

	* /home and /unused1 will be repartitioned into a smaller /home
	  with quots (which will be backed up), and a larger /bulk
	  without quotas (which will not be backed up).  I will create a bulk
	  softlink in each person's home directory to a private directory
	  in /bulk.


	* Master servers for the LAN (apollo and earth) are being ripped out
	  and replaced.

	* The master backup box will be rebuilt, so daily backups may not
	  occur for the next two days.

	* The new package-building box will be added.
